In total 33 sport events were included that were held between 1980-2015 in the Netherlands. The events were selected to vary in fixed vs. mobile, participative or elite sports. Only mega, large and hallmark events were included. A multiple case study was conducted based on secondary resources. The events’ objectives were identified from documents from the various involved stakeholders. In total over 300 documents were analyzed.
